Public Outrage Over CPR Incident Raises Questions for LTC Provider

AGG attorney, Alan C. Horowitz, was recently quoted in blog post by Long-Term Living titled, “Public outrage over CPR incident raises questions for LTC providers,” in which a retirement community nurse refuses a 911 dispatcher’s pleas to perform CPR on a woman who had fallen unconscious and later died. Mr. Horowitz quotes, “I find it disconcerting that a nurse would refuse to provide potentially life saving measures. It’s very unfortunate that CPR wasn’t done and while it may not be a legal obligation I would suggest there is an ethical and moral obligation.”  For more information, please click here.
